Bloom Where You Are Planted

    I got this old washtub last summer and I knew I wanted to put it up on legs.  I didn't get to it until March, when there was still snow on the ground and I knew the general area where I had left this little metal stand, but wasn't able to find it.  I did try it temporarily on some wooden legs.  This really wasn't practical for the purpose for the tub, though.  So I went back and was happy to find my little stand.   I see it either as a planter, or a place for cold drinks in ice.  It does have holes in the bottom and while they are perfect for draining plants or ice, a wooden stand would be damaged pretty easily.  I used my Silhouette to make a stencil for this saying, which I really love.  This will be at my Farmer's Market cabin tomorrow, hopefully!
